the president of the united states, barack obama. >> great job. [ applause ] >> thank you, monica. thanks to monica and everybody standing behind me and thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about this issue. monica's story is important because for all of the day to day fights here in washington around the affordable care act, it's stories like hers that should remind us why we took on this reform in the first place. for too long, a few things left working families more vulnerable to the anxieties and insecurities of today's economy than a broken health care system. we took up the fight because we believe in america, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they got sick. we believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kid's table or taking them to see a doctor. we believe we're a better country than a country where we allow every day 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or where every year tens and thousands of americans died because they didn't have health care or out-of-pocket costs drove

, marjorie, a former consultant to the obama campaign. thanks for joining us this morning. marjorie, i think most people understand in a bad economy a lot of people trying to live off fast food worker wages very tough, sympathetic to the idea of raising their wages. when workers get too expensive businesses replace workers. so we will see automated ordering, won't we, at fast food places? >> look, in order to raise any kind of salary you're obviously going to -- or any kind of wage you're going to have to change the business model a little bit. it means things will cost a little more, there will have to be a shift in the workers. you have to look at the long-term outcome. you pay workers more in the long run, end up with more americans which can spend pore money which grows businesses and our economy having these low wage workers puts on our systems like social security and medicaid, we end up paying almost $900 billion to bank tellers alone, low wage bank tellers, to subsidize their living. we pay for it one way or the other. >> that's an interesting point, michael. what's your response? in

for coming on the show tonight. >> thanks for having me, reverend. >> a congresswoman says president obama and the democrats are behind the war on women's rights. how could anyone believe that? >> i don't think anyone does. so that's where we'll start. but especially attacking the affordable care act. i mean, this is the law that made it so being a woman was no longer a pre-existing condition. and a lot of times previously insurance companies would after you got sick, they would rescind your insurance for something as simple as an irregular menstrual period. so there's no question that a big part of the affordable care act is actually great for women. another piece of this that republicans have been fighting and are now fighting in courts is the contraception mandate, the birth control mandate that's within the affordable care act that's very important to women both in terms of being able to plan their lives and plan their family's lives and their pregnancies. but also in terms of medical benefits. so not only have the gop been perpetrating a war on women, but they still are going after bi

for south africa. >> paul, thank you. >>> a new twist in the troubled rollout of obama care. the obama administration apparently keeps contradicting itself whether or not you should file using paper by hand rather than trying to get on to the crowded website. what would be the problem with using paper? we'll tell you. >> and president obama is defending the iran nuclear deal to our friend israel. he is telling israel that negotiating is in its best interest. >> iran is a large country and is a relatively wealthy country. we have to take seriously the possibility that they are going to try to get a nuclear weapon. that's what this whole exercise is about. american express credit card, every purchase earns you 2% cash back, which is deposited in your fidelity account. is that it? actually... there's no annual fee and no limits on rewards. and with the fidelity cash management account debit card, you get reimbursed for all atm fees. is that it? oh, this guy, too. turn more of the money you spend into money you invest. it's everyday reinvesting for your personal economy. if every u.s. home

. thank you, everybody. god bless you. god bless america. >> that was president obama, who just finished a landmark speech on inequality, economic fairness, and opportunity, speaking in one of the poorest areas of the nation's capital. the president's remarks come at a time when 11.5 million americans cannot find a job and workers' wages have never been lower. at the same time, corporate profits are soaring and the stock market is regularly hitting all-time highs. these disparities have become too stark to ignore, and in his speech, the president issued something of a warning call for the american dream. >> the basic bargain at the heart of our economy has frayed. the idea that so many children are born into poverty in the wealthiest nation on earth is heartbreaking enough. but the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own, that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. >> president obama did not introduce any new policies, but he did reiterate his stro

. over to you, steve. >> thank you very much. >>> prescription for america, president obama making his case to a group at the white house youth summit yesterday by comparing obamacare to the civil rights movement. >> haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it is always hard. civil rights movement was hard. giving weapon the right to vote, that was hard. making sure that workers had the right to organize. that was hard. >> is that a fair comparison? let's talk to fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. >> i guess if you think this is about martin luther king or others, it's not about something that's gone crazy, if you think it's not about a tax and spend plan to redistribute wealth in america and you want to make it about discrimination and class and race and gender warfare, then it's about civil rights. so if you want to romanticize something or talk about the struggle, if you want to talk about a crusade against rich people and middle class people or upper middle class people and somehow bring back a base that has gone away, steve, only 29%, 30% o

. the knack tore begins right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. can the republican party capitalized on president obama's falling popularity that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. new poll from the research center is bad news for president obama across the board on health care policy, 59% of americans disapprove. 37% approve. on the economy, a whopping 65% disapprove. 31% approve. and on immigration policy, 60% disapprove of the president's take, just 32% approve. so you can see the president is standing among americans is at its lowest point ever. the question now becomes can the republican party capitalize in the grand ole party still divided between so-called moderate republicans and committed conservatives. the brawl has been going on for years. and right now the tea party is right in the middle of it. according to real clear politics average, a possible presidential candidates. chris christie a moderate is ahead at 189 percent. conservative rand paul 17%. senator ted cruz 12%. florida senator marco rubio 12%. congressman paul ryan 11%. and j

. >> thank you. good trip. >> what exactly was the vice president able to accomplish? >> well, i think there were two things that really were foremost for the obama administration. one there is a stirmish between china and japan over islands in the east china sea. a big problem for international security. joe biden met with both the prime minister of japan and the president of china and said he made clear to china he wanted them to sort of roll back an air defense zone that china established unilaterally and is threatening japanese and even american commercial aircraft that you have to announce before you enter that space that you have to announce to china you're doing so. it's caused a lot of turmoil and headaches and so the vice president really made that clear. the other big thing in the trip was for the obama administration to make clear their so-called pivot to asia is still a viable priority for them, president obama had to cancel a trip to asia during the government shutdown so the strp was there to say we're still here and still will be strong in the region. >> i'm going to go
